With more than 20 years of photographic experience, GS Ford has taken a wide gamut of photographs, with many different styles and with many different cameras. After using my father's camera for many years, GS Ford was able to purchase my first camera in high school, when he was apart of the yearbook staff. It was there GS Ford learned my darkroom skills and perfected them when he worked in a photolab, photographing artwork and producing color correct prints. Learning art & design from the Academy of Art and from a local college, GS Ford was able to perfect composition in his photographs. GS Ford's passion for photography ignites whenever he sees the perfect moment, the perfect scene, and says to himself, "this must be photographed." Over the years, GS Ford has pushed the limits of photography and has developed new styles that have been quickly copied by competitors. This has only pushed GS Ford to invent new styles of photography. The perfect photograph happens in the moment and is an amalgam of every element in the scene; it changes constantly, finding and capturing it is a rewarding challenge.
I love "seeing" light and how light reflects and shapes a scene. I love finding perfect composition; sometimes that requires the great location and planning, but when it comes together, the results are amazing images. I love the "Golden Hour" hue of light and prefer shooting 2 hours before sunset to capture this light.
I enjoy being creative with photography, whether it's on-location or in a studio. Going further, I enjoy creating a story that can be told in a single photograph. This involves posing, wardrobe, props, makeup, hair styling and most importantly staging, location and lighting. When all this comes together, the results are spectacular.
